Released in 1984, Funk Deluxe self-titled record was one of the last long players album released on the legendary Salsoul imprint. Brainchild of former Brass Construction and Skyy musician Randy Muller, Funk Deluxe’s “This Time” is a timeless excursion into slick 80s boogie and funk.

Carrying shades of Sharon Redd’s “Beat The Street” with its elastic bassline and tough yet slightly shimmery vocals, this little gem should be as highly regarded as the aforementioned Redd classic.
